Here’s what the Internet did with NYT Mag’s ‘Planet Hillary’ cover
And yet it feels we’ve only scratched the surface.
Did the art editors at New York Times Magazine know that their unreal “Planet Hillary” cover was a Photoshop comedian’s dream come true? Because it really seems that way.

Poor Hillary Clinton. Does she truly deserve to be lumped in with these other disgraceful stories, just because she’s had her face digitally altered into a celestial sphere? Of course not—but that doesn’t mean we’ll ever stop laughing.
